Here's some possibilities:

_An American Girl_ features teens rejecting a girl because they think she's Jewish after she buys a Star of David charm for her bracelet.

_What About Prejudice?_ features teens rejecting a boy because of his race.

_Habit Patterns_ features a shy, sloppy girl who is rejected by her peers at a party.

_The Outsider_ features teens who reject a shy girl because they think she's a snob.

_The Bully_ features a boy who controls a number of younger boys through force and threats.

_The Other Fellow's Feelings_ features a boy who taunts a girl with "Stinky" after she accidentally drops a bottle of perfume, doing it until she nearly cracks up.

Another film that might work for your project, but which is not on the Prelinger Archive is _Being Different_. It's a Canadian film which features a boy who is taunted by his peers for enjoying butterfly hunting. You can find it on the video collection _Campy Classroom Classics, Vol. 6, put out by Something Weird.

Thanks so much for these suggestions--I'll check them out. I appreciated the other suggestions made too, but, unfortunately, there weren't any scenes of kids being othered in "Don't Get Angry" or the Activity Group Therapy films.

Really appreciate the help-
